    How many guns is to many?

    Two weapons per slot, 10 slots total (1-0). Weapons conforming to the original Doom niches should be put into the relevant slots. Also make sure that every weapon has a unique role to play. Keep joke weapons to a minimum, because the eventually only serve to clog up the slots. Another modding sin IMO is making each weapon use their own unique ammo type (eg. Brutal Doom Black Edition, which had different ammo types for the pistol, rifle, and minigun). This can result in the player running around with no ammo and only picking up types he doesn't have the weapon for.

    my first map - post your opinions

    Not bad for a first map. As everyone else said, the 3d floors are cool, but IMO there are too many reflective surfaces. It makes the map disorienting, especially when combined with the map's crampedness. The theme of the map is good. It really feels like a space station initially, but IMO the part after the yellow key door looked like some kind of nightclub. Unless, of course, that was the intention. 😃 Overall, a great beginner map, but a little cramped and cluttered.

    OpenGL Lighting Preference

    Standard, sometimes Doom if I want something more atmospheric.

    How does one go about getting better at Doom?

    Just play and have fun. Break out of your comfort zone every now and then and try something harder.

    If every game was like Doom 2016

    Variety is the spice of life. In other words, no, even though I've never played one.
  6. I wake up after having a crazy dream about me almost strangling some guy after he makes fun of me all day, and watching Angry Joe talk about some kind of weird hellish game. For some reason he put a jumpscare after a montage of tortured souls and bodies hanging on walls and shit.


    I wake up to a thunderstorm and a sore throat. Hooray.

    I will test your Brutal Doom maps

    He's referring to maps that make full use of BD's abilities, like, say, scripted leaping imps. The map would most likely not work at all without Brutal Doom, and that's the "not cool" part. I am in no way shitting on Brutal Doom. In fact I love it. Edit: I'm more than willing to play BD wads if you want a second opinion for whatever reason.

    Yeah, building maps around a specific mod locks it to a specific audience. Not cool.

    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    Looks like the Postal Dude raided the area.
  10. Today I ate figs for the first time. Not bad.

    1. UglyStru


      I wouldn't even know how to eat one. Fig Newtons are pretty good, but I already know it's not gonna taste like that... :(

    I always bunnyhop over damaging floors.

    The future of Doom...

    People are still touchy over Columbine, and Doom survived that.
  13. I made a sewer. Which is the better way to populate it after a switch is activated?
  14. God, I hate monster placement. I always have a somewhat clear idea of the map's architecture (eg. I want this place to be a sewer/runway/office) but when it comes to the monsters it's just "a lot/a couple".

      I always place as I map. It becomes part of the design process as opposed to an afterthought / chore. I also retest very, very regularly while mapping to ensure weapon, health & ammo balance is fair. I'd recommend working that way. :)

  15. Brutal Doom has pretty much trained me to always aim for heads, even when I'm not playing Brutal.

    What are you playing now?

    Just beat Biowar with Trailblazer. On Map 18 (the final map) they give you a crapton of backpacks, which also means pretty much every blueprint in the mod and all the junk you ever need is here. Shame you only get to use it for 1 map.

    Specific Things in Doom that annoy you

    When I avoid a slow projectile (eg. imp fireball), and then backpedal into it.

    Specific Things in Doom that annoy you

    When it looks like there's enough room over a ledge/through a window to fire a rocket through, and then the rocket grazes the bottom of the window/ledge, explodes, and hurts/kills you.

    Do you map on a pc or laptop?

    Ooh, sounds convenient. I'll have to try that someday. :D
  21. Jesus rat pissing Christ on a rusty pogo stick the last 2 levels of Fragport were fucking nightmares.


    Map 29:

    The final boss spawning monsters everywhere.

    Killing the hordes of spawned monsters.

    Four Archviles resurrecting the fucking spawned monsters.

    All that while going on a switch hunt.

    I cheated, yes.


    Map 30:

    The concept of a map where you had to escape on a timer is cool. But then my framerate started dropping.

    And dropping.

    And dropping.

    By the time I reached the end I was having literally one frame per second. Not even freeze mode could remedy this.

    Again, I cheated.


    Really shitty end to a really fun playthrough.

    im working on a wad and don't know how to make teleporters

    Aside from reading tutorials, try experimenting. Try using varied linedef functions.

    Opinion: Beautiful Doom is underrated and Brutal Doom is boring

    There's an addon that puts Ketchup gore in Smooth Doom on the Brutal Doom moddb. Get it. Get Smooth Doom monsters only. Then use Slade to extract the individual wads from the Beautiful Doom pk3. Load the Beautiful wads first, then the Smooth Doom monsters, then Ketchup. Keep in mind that options will be overridden.
  25. I've made a couple of props to use in a map I'm making. They'll probably be used several times, so I want them to look as good as possible. Go to the imgur page for what they're supposed to be.
